(Editor's Note: Before we get too excited by the following account and video, keep in mind there have been several versions of this story and more evidence is needed. Some of the photos show a different object than others.
Also, the title of the video is misleading; there is no video of any object crashing, only a fast-moving white object is seen, which may or may not be the object in question, and other pictures of different vehicles allegedly involved in the recovery. So be your own judge, and possibly more accurate information will be forthcoming.)
From Metro News...
Is this a flying saucer which crashed into Lake Winnipeg last week? Or is it something much more boring, like a hot air balloon?
And why do UFO hunters never seem to have a good camera to hand when their big moment comes?
Conspiracy sites have gone wild over a photo said to be of army snowmobiles pulling a huge disc out of an icy lake in Canada – posted on Facebook by the oddly named ‘Brent Mancheese’.
The photo in question, Latest UFO Sightings reports, was taken by an eyewitness whose camera has since been destroyed, almost certainly by the Men in Black.
The site says, ‘Allegedly, vehicles of the Canadian Military were lined up on the north shore. Taking pictures in the scene was strictly prohibited, and the army even issued a threat to anybody who tried to do so. Lots of eyewitnesses were in the area.
‘These witnesses apparently saw a round object being hauled across the lake and pulled out by snowmobiles and bombardier. Eight fishermen reported the incident, but Mancheese wonders why the authorities did not let the media know if it was a plane crash.
‘At least one witness managed to get a photo of the craft. Unfortunately, that person has since been detained by the Canadian military.
The Canadian military has said that the ‘UFO’ was, in fact, an aircraft with vertical take-off capability.
But the conspiracy sites aren’t buying that…

UFO near Jackhead? It's actually a plane, says military - Canadian Forces in Lake Winnipeg area this week for Arctic training exercise
Posts like these were circulating on Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday night, with people suggesting there was a UFO crash near Jackhead, Man. It was actually an airplane being used in a military training exercise, according to the Canadian Forces.
Social media reports of a possible UFO sighting last night near Jackhead, Man., are not true, says the Canadian Forces, which attributed the bright light people saw to an airplane from a training exercise.
On Wednesday night, several people said on Twitter and Facebook that they saw a bright light in the sky, fuelling speculation that it may have been an unidentified flying object.
The rumour became stronger when photos were posted of Canadian Forces vehicles in the area, with some people claiming the military was there to contain a UFO crash site.
But it was not a UFO at all, says Lt.-Col. Paul Davies, commanding officer 38 Territorial Battalion Group, which is involved in an Arctic Response Company Group training exercise on Lake Winnipeg this week.
"There's no aliens, just my friends in the air force who are out there helping us on this exercise," Davies told CBC News on Thursday.
"I have the commander of that air force contingent sitting right beside me and, you know, he assures us that that was not a UFO, but that was him."
About 150 military personnel are taking part in Exercise Arctic Bison 2015, which includes the 38 Canadian Brigade Group, the 2nd Battalion of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group, and 440 Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Davies said soldiers are training to deal with a plane crash and provide ground search and rescue support in the Arctic.
The bright light that people saw, he explained, came from an airplane that takes off very quickly.
"From a distance it may have looked like it was going straight up in the air, but it wasn't," he said. "It was just us out there playing our games."
The exercise wraps up on Sunday.
